Ubiquitous electronic devices are connecting us like never before. In this short documentary, we meet six individuals from the much-maligned "millennials" generation. While they may come from entirely different backgrounds, they are akin due to their shared digital experiences and interests. Through this connection, they were able to unite online and deal with the recent blockade in a very different way than other generations.
